    Model 3 completely dead this morning. What an experience. [dead 12v]

    Finally got my car back today. They had to replace the HV pack in addition to the 12v. This was the diagnosis and fix per the invoice: The tech who worked on the car had already gone home so I didn’t get a detailed explanation as to what happened and why the HV battery failed after only 4 years...

    If so too bad my warning didn’t come before the 12v went kaput

    Tesla Model 3 Charging Issue

    Omg same thing just happened to my 2018 LR Model 3 on Friday - 2 wks after my warranty expired! Was charging my car overnight, when in the morning I got a bunch of back to back alerts saying my parking brake functions were degrading, my electrical system power was reduced & vehicle was shutting...

    VIN Assignment

    Ok my ISA informed me that the VINS are intentionally assigned out of sequence to “prevent VIN swapping and racketeering”, and that my car was built this month. A pdf of the window sticker verified this. So relieved!

    VIN Assignment

    I got an email from my ISA asking to confirm my registration info and I replied asking what the build date is for my VIN (193xx) and whether it was a reject rework etc. Let’s see what they say but I don’t care at this point either unless they do say it was a delivery reject in which case...

    Let’s keep our fingers crossed that ours escaped the build issues

    VIN Assignment

    Got my VIN today, 193xx, config 4/18, red aero SAP. Only concern is it appears to be a lower vin# compared to the others being posted here for the red Aeros which appear to be in the 220’s...

    4/18 Invites

    The summary chart shows a total of 8 VINs issued to 4/18 config, all of them sports wheels, no Aeros. So doesn’t yet reflect the other poster who received a VIN on an aero. I’m still waiting for a VIN, 3/31 online, config 4/18, red, aero. My sister is also 3/31 online, config 4/18, MSM, sport...

    White Paint Bumper mismatch

    Saw this pic posted by a friend of a friend on Facebook - his 3 was delivered last week @ Marina Del Rey. The mismatch is so glaringly obvious I’m surprised he took delivery.

    Model 3 on display in various SoCal starting today

    I have only spotted 2 in the wild here in greater LA - one on the 134fwy near the studios and one in DTLA. My sis who is waiting for delivery of hers in NorCal spots several 3s every day. Still I feel quite lucky to have had the chance to test drive it at a recent public EV event. Just sitting...

    Model 3 on display in various SoCal starting today

    FYI got an email alert that the Model 3 is going to be on display at Tesla Topanga (Canoga Park) and Tesla Santa Monica starting today. More options to see the car up close & personal for those who are down here in SoCal but haven’t yet had the chance to head down to Century City or encounter...

    4/18 Invites

    Actually my sister who also reserved online 3/31 & also invited & configured on 4/18 did get the 19” sport wheels and also EAP - and she still doesn’t have a VIN either (ordered in blue). Checked the chart just now and there’s only one vin from 4/18. So I don’t think it’s just the wheels. And...

    I was nervous too which is why I jumped at the chance to drive it - but don't worry, you will LOVE it!!!

    I hear you!!! I'm the same way!!!

    4/18 Invites

    No but have driven an S numerous times. IMHO the 3 is sportier & nimbler & more fun to drive than the S, and the other Tesla owners who were at the event agreed

    4/18 Invites

    I was fortunate enough to get the chance to test drive a 3 last month at an EV event hosted by the Cities of Glendale, Burbank & Pasadena. Had to wait 3 hours for my turn but it was soo worth it! In one word, it was AMAZING.

    Valet Parking

    True but very few 3's on the road currently, and the 3's key card is a new feature...

    Valet Parking

    Yes though it may be quite a while before they get used to the key card versus the fobs since 3's are still quite a rare sighting here in SoCal.

    Valet Parking

    Newbie here who just configured mine yesterday and waiting for delivery; but just dawned on me that leaving the M3 with valets may be a bit tricky/sticky - having to trust that they won't misplace/lose the keycard, having them fuss with the touchscreen, etc. I live in LA where valet parking is...

    4/18 Invites

    New poster. Non owner, 1st day (3/31) reserved online during event. Received my invite yesterday 4/18 at 1:14pm PST, configured without any problems except the registration address defaulted to an old address from back in 2016, and no way to update or change it. Had to call Tesla (on hold for...
